448 Either Way.


The other day I decided to trade some Pokemon from Diamond to Platinum.  Can’t remember why now, but I had a reason at the time.  I threw some old school Pokemon onto the list just to make sure that the old annoying things about trading were still intact.  To my surprise there didn’t seem to be any restrictions at all.  I traded over the starters from Ruby/Sapphire/Green & Red, and a few random special pokemon.  Never once was I told I couldn’t.  It nearly made me cry.  They finally removed all the bullshit restrictions, or my games are somehow flawed in such a way that I’m allowed to cheat.  Either way, win. 

I don’t know if any of you are familiar with Ben Folds Five, but one of my friends is moving even farther away from me soon, and I find myself hearing the song “Video” in my mind.  I’ve always been striving to get to an imaginary point in my life when I’ll be able to gather my friends together at a moments notice.  I think becoming an adult must partially be to accept that there’s no way for that to be real.  Giving up on that is just something I can’t seem to do though.  Every day I’m trying to figure out what I need to do to make that insane dream come true. 

(If this were an emo teenager’s blog you’d find the lyrics to the chorus of the song right here.)

I dream unreasonable dreams…  but at least they have a sweet piano rock soundtrack.   XD
